In New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Kresley Cole's sizzling series, a fierce werewolf and a bewitching vampire become unlikely soul mates whose passion will test the boundaries of life and death. After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. Emmaline Troy is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him. Sheltered Emmaline finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents--until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae--and their notorious dark desires--ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings. Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?… (mer)

A Hunger Like No Other av Kresley Cole

  1. 70
    Dark Lover av J. R. Ward (Ezinwanyi)
    Ezinwanyi: Black Dagger Brotherhood is a much better written series with steamier love scenes but the same kind of passionate devotion. If you want Alpha males who want to love and protect their women, try BDB.

3.5 stars! There were parts that I really enjoyed and parts I didn't love so much but this book definitely made me excited to read more books in this series.

This book was written in 2006 and you can tell. The first few chapters in this book feel a little weird to read in the year 2020. Lachlain is kind of an asshole to Emma and treats her really horribly. He thinks about how he should be allowed to sleep with her just because she's his mate, even if she doesn't want to have sex with him. It doesn't feel great to read but it does allow us to see how he grows as a person and treat Emma better and as her own person. Emma also develops from being a very passive captive to someone who truly believes that she can take care of herself even if no one else does. Both these paths left me feeling kinda meh about the beginning of the book but I really enjoyed seeing how they had developed by the end.

I also thought the world building was pretty well done. It does feel like there's a lot more to learn in later books in this series but I could still understand what was happening in this book. There are a lot of species to introduce and I felt like I understood all the most important traits that are relevant in this book. I have read paranormal romances that don't explain their traits well enough and it ends up being very confusing and I never felt that here.

I am very excited to read the later books in this series. This one definitely wasn't perfect and it probably won't stay with me in totality but it did set up this world really well and made me want to read on. ( )

I admit that I read the book just to know what the fuss was all about, but I just couldn't grasp the romance between the two "lovers". It wasn't the love I was expecting to read about. I'm pretty disappointed in this one, I shouldn't have had so high expectations! ( )

Of course, Lachlain, being a werewolf, is Scottish. He acts so much like a medieval laird, it's pretty hilarious. Emma started to get on my nerves after a while. I understand she's kind of a fish out of water for a bit, but like, come on girl. Get with the picture. But once she did, I was a happy camper. The lingo could be a bit cringey at times, but I'll give her some leeway for the time in which it was written. I like how I can see Cole dropping crumbs for future books and look forward to getting to the rest of the series. ( )

This book is very much a romance and it has all the cliches to go with it but it's a fun romp along the way.

Lycan (werewolf) king Lachlain has been imprisoned in the catacombs beneath Paris for 150 years by the vampire king. Fires burn him nearly to death over and over again and then his body regenerates and he lives through the torture again. By a stroke of life, his mate (aka soul mate) passes through Paris above. After 1000's of years of waiting for her he's not going to let a little thing like flames and manacles keep him from her now.

Meanwhile Emmaline, part Valkyrie, part Vampire is touring through Paris trying to track down her real father. Emmaline is a little special, she doesn't drink blood straight from the source (aka bottled) and she's not exactly a fighter, more a runner. After living a life time (70 years) with Valkyrie aunts who believe the only good vampire is a dead vampire, Emmaline is a little confused about where she fits in life. Then along comes a huge Lycan who seems convinced she needs to come with him and he has the right to paw at her.

Emmaline is the typical romance heroine: she's of course a virgin, never been kissed, all that good stuff, but one touch from Lachlain and she's all about more. She's also suffering from some self confidence issues and in need of protection. Such a good romance heroine. She of course waffles back in forth - adoring Lachlain for his strength, his good looks, and the few times he's good to her, then hating him for pawing her around, losing his temper and keeping her from her family. Lachlain is the usual hero: he's strong, good looking, and a tortured soul who's been waiting for "that one woman". And he's Scottish - drool. These things are all so cliche but the author pulls it off a lot better than a lot of writers and her cast, outside of Emmaline and Lachlain is original.

Lachlain forces Emmaline to drive with him to his home keep as he tries to figure out what to do with a mate who's not even his own species and just happens to be an enemy species. Typical romance back and forth - if this happened in real life you'd tell your girlfriend she had an abusive boyfriend, but romance authors everywhere manage to make it work and make us like it. Just be warned if you hate this kind of thing. It's skillfully done but a cliche is a cliche.

Emmaline's family is highly entertaining. The Valkyries all have their own strengths. They're ferocious in battle and not afraid to take names. I loved the Valkyries. They're all a little peculiar and madly in love with their missing halfling. The story behind each is touched on and sets you up for the rest of the series which should be fun. They're a "little" annoyed with Emmaline's Lycan. Lycan's are enemy #2 right behind Vampires and they don't like him hanging around their innocent, fragile, virginal girl.

Emmaline and Lachlain go on their cross-nation trip and the Valkyries at home are battling vampires who seem to suddenly be coming out of the wood work. When the Valkyries and Vampires catch up with them all hell breaks out.


A fun read. Very cliche. I love the Valkyries but I have yet to pick up any more of these. Maybe in the future though. If you enjoy paranormal romance this book is pretty hot.
